Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

Beggin Strips-I'll sell my soul for 'em:)

Camera, stairs, playful puppies, kids that think they HAVE to pull and poke you.

Favorite Toy:
My bed.

Favorite Food:
Beggin Strips-oh thats not a food?

Favorite Walk:
romping in the yard-then going inside for a nap!

Best Tricks:
I sleep, I sit, I come when called, I don't tell secrets, I treat dad like he's the most special person in the world!

Arrival Story:
Dad bought me at a breeder, I was such a cute baby! I had the nack of throwing myself at the peoples feet at a perfect belly rub postition, but they kept tripping over me, so I stopped (I'm a pretty smart guy;). I'm laid back and eeeaaasssyyy going. I used to love having my picture taken, not anymore, I used to like to sleep on the bed, go up and down stairs, but not anymore (good luck getting an awake pic of me!); I'm old so I don't have to put up with that stuff now:).

A couple of years ago mom took me to the vet and had me tested for heartworms. I came up postive. I'm too old for effective treatment, so mom and dad just decided to take me home and let me live out my short life. YEARS later, I'm still here! Mom got dad a 'replacement' basset (she's a ding-dong), but I'm still here! Mom said I could have whatever I wanted to eat (deadman diet), sometimes I'm limited because I'm gassy. So now I just enjoy the fat happy life of 'the old man' {rumor has it I had the vet switch the results-I'll never tell;}

Forums Motto:
Don't make me show you the TOOTH!

I guess you know the fence is finished so now we have a big backyard to move around in, mom lets me inside to nap, since I'm old I take LOTS of naps:). Ahh, good to be me!

Mom got a new puppy, she has given the training to Rebadingdong, I don't see this going too well, but atleast Rebadingdong leaves me alone. Since SiSi died in Jan, Rebadingdong has been my shadow, what a pest.

This new puppy already knows I'm the boss so she leaves me alone.

Today mom fed us stale bread, and expected me to let the puppy finish her piece. Really mom! That baby took to long, and that means 'finish it for me' in puppy language.

Ahh, life is good!!!

Our fence is up, so we are super safe. Mom is on call to let me in whenever I want. Dad built me a ramp since the stairs are hard, but I'm still trying the stairs. I'll use the ramp when I can't use the stairs anymore. Reba keeps getting excited when we come in (like she's NEVER been inside before-what a goober) and has bumped me off the porch more than once. Once I landed in the water bucket, how embarrsing! And mom just laughed! No wonder I love dad the bestest, HE wouldn't laugh-atleast I don't think so.

I have a huge comforter for my bed in the big bedroom (thanks dad), and the door doesn't latch so I just give it a shove and go to bed anytime I want. Sometimes Reba sleeps with me, most the time not. She's too busy sucking up to the peeps. Silly girl! REAL dogs don't need to suck up. Ahhh, its good to be me. I told dad we could do without Reba, but he said she wasn't a threat and he loves her. Well, since I love dad, I guess she can stay. After all she HAS been here almost 4 years. And like dad said, she's no threat to my gettin attention!
Living the life!
